Dharti (Music review), Punjabi – Jaidev Kumar
Mika’s Punjabi hip-hop in Gaddi moudan ge sounds good since it gets the catchy hooks right, while Warrant tries a similar hip-hop pattern with poorer results. Jaggi Singh’s title song has an unconventional rhythm pattern that hooks you in instantly; Jaggi’s earthy vocals help too. If you ignore the 2 short, chant’ish Sura so pehchaniye (made immortal in pop culture by Tamas’ theme song) and Deh Shiva, what stands out is Gippy Grewal’s Sarkaaran that has a lovely folk tune using the Iktara sound, and Rabbi’s Bandiya Tu, a rocking guitar-loaded pop sufi track! Highly listenable work by Jaidev Kumar.
